Lil Xan just reached a new stage in life. The Cali rapper announced he is about to be a father.

Xan made the exciting revelation via Instagram on Sunday (Feb. 17). Posting a photo embracing his girlfriend Annie Smith, he let the cat out of the bag in the caption.

"I wanted to wait but i just can’t leave my fans in the dark, it’s official im going to be a father," he wrote. "I love you guys so much and hope you stay along for this crazy journey and i’ve never felt more happy in my life💔 all of you are invited to the gender reveal party i promise ! Cant wait to show the world everything i’ve been working on at youtube space and my official sophomore album “BE SAFE” and to my baby my angel my sunshine @anniiesmith i love you with all my heart ❤️ thank you for saving me i love you more then words could describe 💌👼🏼💔💔💔💔💔💔💔💔💔💔."

Smith also commented on the pregnancy via IG. "I could go on and on about how beyond grateful and lucky i am to have you by my side in life. but today to keep it simple and honest, i love you to the moon and stars, always baby," she captioned the same photo.

The 22-year-old rapper has seemed to be in good spirits following a rough patch at the end of 2018. In December, he admitted himself in drug rehab to deal with opioid addiction. He left two weeks later after getting sober.

In other Xan-related news, earlier this month police closed a criminal investigation into a man who made threats against the rapper.
